The gold medal associated with this award is normally conferred upon high ranking Officers, and the silver medal is normally conferred upon individuals who have participated in a public or office duty, for a notable period of time, as well as public servants.
The rim of the medal is engraved with the recipient's name.
The medal may have been conferred upon women, in which case, the medal would be awarded on a bow.
